's. there has been a loss here in the senate. the senator from the hawaii, daniel inouye at 88 years old passed away yesterday. that will likely cause interruption for a few days for memorial services next couple weeks. whether for the president and most members of congress to go to hawaii or for the late senator to lie in state at the capitol, all things would cut up more time, meaning in all likelihood, if they find an agreement that could be considered real they would have to give themselves a little bit of overtime and pass one of the legislative vehicles that essentially stops the clock to take it into new year's. that was not the plan. that is why they put together what was called sequester so they would be forced to put a legislative gun to their heads to make a deal. looks like they may give themselves a little bit of after school study time. bill: we'll see how that pays off. carl cameron leading our coverage. thank you, sir. martha: the bottom line really does this deal begin to address the economic problems that exist in this country? stuart varney, the anchor of "varney & company" o

, and could not be nationalized. when he married my mother, who was born in hawaii and a citizen, therefore, the moment she got married, she lost her citizenship because of a law that was passed. in 1924, a law was passed in the congress, approved by the president, that said, if a people is to be found on qualify for citizenship, their homeland will not qualify. this was the quarter legislation. in the case of japan, it was singled out. the one country in the world without immigration. if you use this as a background, one can understand why certain levels of animosity developed and existed prior to december 7. we, as young people, had no idea about what's going on. >> let's jump forward now. let's talk specifically about your experiences as a young man. 18 years old. >> i was 17. a senior in high school. i was well aware of the events and although our neighbors were very friendly and understanding, when the news of december 7 finally hit me, i realized what had happened. i concluded the end of the world was here. after all, the man who piloted those planes look like us, look like me. gounod

morning. >> reporter: well, good morning, rebecca. the president boarded air force one in hawaii early this morning and headed back to washington to deal with the so-called fiscal cliff. with just five days until the combination of automatic tax increases and spending cuts that could send the economy back into recession, the president wants congress to take the lead in getting the job done. the senate convenes later today and majority leader harry reid has told members to be prepared to work on fiscal cliff issues through the weekend. reid is working on his own plan to get members to come together before the end-of-the-year deadline. that plan would likely include letting the bush tax cuts expire for households making more than $250,000 a year and short-term spending cuts instead of the massive cuts that would occur if there is no deal. after a wednesday conference call, house republican leaders issued a statement saying they're waiting for the democratic-controlled senate to act. adding to an already volatile situation, treasury secretary tim geithner in a lette

president obama called the top four congressional leaders last night on his way back from hawaii. tomorrow afternoon at the white house will be a meeting between the president and those top four congressional leaders and earlier the top senate democrat expressed concern or frustration saying you cannot legislate with yourself. >> the republicans in the house have left town. the negotiations between the president and the speaker have fallen apart as they have for the last three and a half years. we have tried mightily to get something done. >> now, perhaps in an effort to address that we know late today senator reid who you heard from there went to meet with his counter part senator mcconnell the top republican in the senate, perhaps talking about what it will take to bring some republicans along on a potential deal. harris? >> harris: a lot of energy spent on all this going back and forth. in fact, leading republicans suggesting a great deal of time has been wasted on politics. >> that is precisely right. they note that the house republicans tried to address the issues this summer and vote
fastic name. it's like tom wolf. perfectly portrays hawaii, you know, nature. he's the fine -- mid 19th merge has to offer he has essentially financial resources in the darings when table could involve cash as well as anything else you imagine. that doesn't happen. of course not. enormous advantages. he's been to many conventions. he dominated most. he goes there in fact sue ward was not the republican nominee in 1856 they told him there was no way we were winning. you don't want to be the leader of losing cost. let's wait four years and we'll win. he read the politics right. lincoln's campaign manager david davis just to put this speft davis has never been to a republican national convention. you have the veteran the bested in the business against a guy who has never been to a convention. davis went in and the one advantage that he doesn't know about he knows lincoln is going to be player. he know it's the midwest and it's a hometown. he knows that chase is going have the ohio delegateds the delegates from ohio support chase on the floor of the convention on the first ballot only. let'
short and set to leave hawaii tonight to head back to d.c. he will avoid one pr nightmare being on vacation while the precious moments tick away. he faces another as being a president who let the country go off the cliff. if you think that's a bad thing. the senate is back in action and the house has yet to receive a 48 hour heads up to return. john boehner said he refuses to call him back if there is no deal to vote on. he has given up hope and opting to work with senate democrats to push their bill from this past summer that extends rates on those less than $250,000. he failed to get his party behind a threshold and what are the odds this bill will pass. let's get the latest read on those not going on on capitol hill. luke, what is the latest? >> the latest is that there is aides i spoke to that think there is a 50-50 chance that the senate could get a small scale agreement on the floor the next few days and possibly be passed. that gets more and more unlikely as time goes by. harry reid is gauging interest with republican and democratic senators. he doesn't want to put anythi
to hawaii for the holidays. basically resetting the discussion for income rates at the threshold he originally wanted, $250,000 for couples. why that's important is because in previous conversations with speaker boehner, the president had moved off that number to something more friendly to the republican party, putting the number at about $400,000 and people thought that's where conversations would start today. democrats say, no, that's not the case because the speaker didn't have the membership vote on the $250,000 threshold. so this is about leverage, it's about negotiation. it's democrats going in to the meeting stronger they feel than what they perceive to be speaker boehner's position. republicans today talking about to me about various options they see and lots of conversations going on and certainly a spirit of willingness to get something done. can it get done? can it get done practically? those are the hard questions. >> yeah. after this 3:00 meeting, kelly o., will there be a document, a plan, a piece of legislation that will be carried from pennsylvania avenue to capitol
hours to get the conclusion. the president's plane won't take off for hawaii probably until saturday afternoon at 3:00. there'll be the pearls if you will tied to the railroad tracks. and in the end they'll get a deal this saturday. because it looks like arithmetic at this point. it'll be $500,000 a year. how do you see it? you're a games person. you know how they're looking at this thing. >> you know, i'm not sure. we usually agree, chris. i'm not sure we see it the same way. john boehner appears to be going off his own personal political cliff. what he is doing if you just look back at the last few days, clearly it seems he and the president were dealing with each other in relatively good faith. they were compromising. they were both giving up things that were making their base unhappy. and then boehner goes to plan "b" and says they're going to vote on plan "b." now he's sticking to the plan "b" yesterday, except it sounds -- last thing i heard when i went in here is he's going to attack spending cuts. because he doesn't control his caucus, chris. he's getting such major blowback

-year-old danny inouye saw the japanese planes over his hawaii home, on december 7, 1941, his first impulse was to help so he ran to help. he had emergency medical training and so he used that training to help bind the wounds of the americans injured in the attack on pearl harbor. his second impulse, just as strong, was to defend our country. but the america of 1941 did not want his service. in fact, it considered danny and his fellow japanese americans suspect and called them enemy aliens. and confined more than 100,000 of them to internment camps. when danny inouye tried to enlist to defend his country, his country told him you are not welcome. but danny inouye did not allow anger and resentment to overcome his love of country says something remarkable about him and about our country. when in 1943 president roosevelt allowed japanese americans to enlist in the fight against nazi germany, inouye and thousands of young men answered the call. he burned with desire to defend the nation that had told him and people of his background -- quote -- "you may not serve." a nation that still
